With hearing about the serious issues that some people here are going through right now, I decided that I need a reminder to enjoy what I have now. It is so easy to slip into worring far in excess than should be done over the samll things. So a few recent pieces of good fortune......... 1) I needed to sell my baby horse as I'm am too old to really train a youngster and I need to conserve on expenses. I am so fortunate that I have a friend who is willing to buy her - this friend will give her such a cushy life. So no worries about whether it is the right thing to do. 2) I have a place to store hay to carry me through the winter so that I'm not scrambling with trying to get it at a time when it is hard. I built this hayshed myself ( who'd a thunk it) a few years ago in part from redwood milled at my own place. And it's done well for me. 3) I don't have to travel in my desiel truck to work everyday so have been able to hold that scary expense down. 4) I thought I had another very expensive fix needing done with my water system but it turned out that the leak I was able to fix myself resolved the problem. 5) I have my goaties for endless entertainment. And many more to numerous to list right now but I may come back and add more.
